Mental health matters. For 49 years, The Women's Center has ensured that more than 200,000 individuals who need effective mental health services are not turned away due to lack of income or insurance. Community members for whom counseling is often out of reach, including single parents, people without employment, and those who have experienced trauma, can access high-quality care that meets them where they are: in person or virtual, in English or Spanish, and FOR as little as $5 per session. The Center also provides free, comprehensive domestic violence services that help survivors feel safe and supported along their journeys toward breaking the cycle of violence. Through community collaborations, clients gain access to the housing, food, career, legal, and mediation resources they need to strengthen their lives. Everyone needs a support system. You can be part of that network of care.
